Room 102

In the heart of Old Montreal stand the ruins of the historic National Trust building. Behind the façade of World-war-II-era structure, dust from almost century-old debris swirls slowly in winter light. With support from the future hotel/artspace project SonoLux, artist Nancy Guilmette has created a site-specific installation, transforming the structure into a space where new life occurs. In room 102 of the building, an immaculate white bed has been placed, creating a startling juxtaposition between cold concrete architecture and the erupting vivacity of nature.
